The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Low-cost Individual Digital Dosimeters using Solid State Photomultipliers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05007

    U.S. forces working in low-level radiation environments have unsatisfactory choices for monitoring radiation exposure. A solid-state photomultiplier (SSPM) uses an array of silicon based avalanche photodiodes (APD) to collect light and produce a signal proportional to the amount of light collected. The ability to produce arrays of APD’s in a CMOS (Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) envir ...

  2. LIBS: An Alternative to Commercial Instruments for Measurement of Lead

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radioactive materials are used in commercially important analytical instruments because of the ability of ionizing radiation to excite characteristic x-ray fluorescence lines. Radiation sources are often the most practical method for portable instruments, such as analyzers for lead paint in homes. There are many other applications, including the rapidly growing area of RoHS manufacturing. This eff ...

  3. PET Detector for Cardiac Imaging of Small Animals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Positron emission tomography (PET) of small animals is emerging as a very powerful tool for advancing our understanding of human diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Due to the small (sub-millimeter) feature sizes, dedicated, high resolution PET systems are required to obtain sufficiently detailed images of organs of interest. In particular, sub-millimete ...

  4. High Sensitivity Pesticide and Nerve Agent Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): RMD Inc. proposes to develop direct reading, highly sensitive, reusable point sensors for detecting organophosphate and carbomate pesticide and nerve agent contamination in liquid and air. The sensors can be made for visual detection and handheld instrument readout using absorbance and fluorescence transduction modes, and will be suitable for unattended continu ...

  5. Low Cost Co Doped Scintillator for Medical CT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Although CsI:TI is one of the most desirable scintillators for a broad range of medical and industrial diagnostics, it has never been applicable to X-ray computerized tomography (CT). Despite the otherwise superb properties of CsI, it suffers from a persistent afterglow that simply does not decay fast enough to provide rapid framing rates without unacceptable c ...

  6. HIGH RESOLUTION NUCLEAR CARDIAC IMAGING

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Nuclear medicine imaging modalities such as single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) are powerful, non-invasive medical imaging techniques that provide an image of the three dimensional distribution of a radionuclide in any slice through an organ under study in the body [Phelps]. These images allow investigation ...

  7. High Spatial Resolution Structured Plastic Scintillator

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this Phase I project is to develop a fast high spatial resolution scintillator for time-resolved neutron crystallography. Neutron crystallography compliments x-ray crystallography in its ability to precisely locate hydrogen atoms in protein molecules. The information on hydrogen location is important for monitoring protein dynamics (e.g. hydrogen-de ...

  8. High Resolution PET Detectors for Combined PET-MR Small Animal Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ideal biological imaging system would provide non-invasive, high-resolution, high-sensitivity, three-dimensional (3D) images of living systems. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) offers high sensitivity to a range of biological processes through the use of targeted radiolabeled probes. Unfortunately, precise signal localization can be extremely difficult du ...

  9. Multibeam Healing for Laser Micromachining in Manufacturing

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a considerable interest in using laser-manufacturing methods for medical applications due to their potential to reduce cost. In fact, the precision and low-force signature of lasers makes them very attractive alternatives to traditional machining methods for brittle materials such as lutetium oxyorthosilicate (LSO) and gadolinium oxyorthosilciate (GSO) ...

  10. Internal-gain CMOS APS Camera for SPECT Imaging of Small Animals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Nuclear medicine techniques such as SPECT and PET are powerful tools for functional imaging of biological processes in vivo. Recently, there have been significant advances in development of human disease models in small animals. A critical advantage of SPECT and PET is that they allow functional information to be obtained non-invasively, so each animal can serv ...
